Comments On The Passing Of Jim Lehrer

Jim Lehrer was a model and a mentor to so many.  He represented journalism at its best.  In an era in which pressures in our culture and politics have intensified that are defining down civility, decency and even veracity, he was a truth seeker who never wavered in embracing and honoring the time-honored journalistic standards that have never been more important to our nation.

Marcelle and I were among his many admirers, and we are fortunate also to have known him as a friend.  Our thoughts today are also with Kate and their family.
